  22. I've always wanted to see the drawing of the sap from the sugar maples--beautifully expressed.

    I love how you wrote in the snow. That's is a very cool effect, as if you actually drew it with your finger.

  24. foreign images
    shared of Spring … delightfully
    stretch experience

    Being a native Southern California ‘beach’ dweller … such images of Spring amaze me for they are in stark contrast to my own.

    Thanks for visiting each of my OSI posts this week. I was late with last week’s prompt Circles but you might enjoy it if time permits. I’m grateful that you and Sandy have introduced me to these wonderful ‘blogging’ poets!
    Hugs and blessings,

  29. Sometimes it is quite difficult to express with very few words what you wish to convey, and likewise some of the simplest-looking pictures require tremendous sacrifice to obtain them... congratulations, my love, on your success...
